    Here it is guys! All things covered, from Stock to AOSP! All files will be hosted at the bottom. Please hit like if I've helped you in any way.

    Disclaimer! I am NOT responsible for what you do to your device. This is for the Sprint Galaxy S4. Both the L720 AND the L720t. This "WILL" work for 4.4.2 but trips Knox. Be Warned!

    In this Tutorial I assume you have read this 'entire' guide. Carefully.
    First you will need to set up your pc. Windows xp - 8.1 should be fine. The first file you will need is Odin Multidownloader found at bottom of post. I am going to host so their easier to find.
    After downloading all files you can proceed.

    You will need:
    1. Your S4 drivers on your pc. "Installed"
    2. Odin 1.85 on your pc. "Installed"
    3. Cf autoroot.tar.md5 again on your pc. "Somewhere easy to find".
    4. Patience and Common Sence.

    Step one. Get your drivers. And install them. Make sure they are the only ones you have. Meaning uninstall any other cell phone driver first.

    Step two. Install Odin. The one provided if possible please. 'This limits complications for me.. and makes it possible for me to help should a error occur.' And please 'don't check/uncheck any boxes. Same thing as ^^

    Step three. (More of a recommend rule-of-thumb.) Compile all files in the unzipped odin folder. This way Odin should auto locate the cf autoroot.tar.md5 file. ;)

    Step four. Watch learn and profit. ;)

    Part 1. (Root)

    Note. In 'rooting' your phone you will most likely trip a software called Knox. IT WILL VOID YOUR WARRENTY... happy flashing. ;)

    Part 2.a. (Recovery)

    Note. In installing anything from this app 'ROM Installer' (If on the new L720t device) you must go to it's Settings, find Custom device name, and type 'jfltespr'. It will not work otherwise!
    P.S. The button to switch between ROMs and Recovery is the very top left of the app. Just hit the word ROM in the apps header.

    Part 2.b. (Recovery/ROM Download)

    Note. Nothing. Pretty obvious as to what to do here.

    Part 3. (ROM Installation)

    Note. Any of these Roms are available to download and test/use. Please consider that the L720t users should proceed with caution. (Personally ive tried around 5-7 different L720 ROMs. No big problem.. except excessive heat on PAC ROM. but may have been a fluke. Or my fault. ;) )

    I tried to PM you but it didn't work. Did you ever find a stock rooted ROM download for the 720T?

    Dais, is it possible that this post has been corrupted? I only see your steps up to the last line quoted below (Step two install Odin). After that there is nothing. I see there are more steps, as quoted by other replies, but the links don't work in those quotes.
